During lockdown we had to take the decision to cancel the normal Monday and Friday supported drop in gardening sessions at the Carshalton Community Allotment. However a small team of local volunteers have dedicated their time to looking after the allotment and growing fresh vegetables for donation to Sutton Women Centre food bank for women in crisis. There has been an increased demand for this food bank from women in need since covid-19 and we are delighted to be able to help in this way.
We plan to get back to running gardening sessions for people who need support to take part in allotment food growing later in the autumn.
Our Organic Food Growing course is being adapted for Covid-19 and is going ahead.
